Montage of various notebooks of writings

Light Verse

Fruits of the Garden

It was quite wrong of Eve to presume
(Especially when both were living so happily)
That they might as well also consume
Things round, red and applely;
And Adam, sad Adam, was wrong to concur:
(He didn't dare ask for it cooked!)
If only he'd chosen a peach or a pear,
He would not have been hooked,
And caused such a storm,
No matter how closely and often he'd looked
At her form.
But all's not lost!
Is this not the reason why
Bliss is more than meets the eye?
